Oppressive humidity and heat in the summer. Check out the Panhandle or El Paso which is one of the safest cities in the country. Ironically, border towns are safer than areas some 100 miles north.
Um where have you been?? El Paso is NOT one of the safest cities in the US.....

California is controlled by public sector unions, environmental zealots, radical Marxists, and illegals. Taxpayers and businesses are fleeing the state. Even the illegals are going back to Mexico. There are more people on welfare in CA than there are people working. Illegals cost the state $21 billion a year. The CA debt rises with each tax hike, and the economy is on the verge of collapse (Yet, the moron Jerry Brown is insisting on building a high speed train to nowhere).

It is a crime for a grocery store to give you a plastic bag for your groceries. The state fines you if you light a fire in your fireplace on certain freezing cold nights.

Don't ever listen to anything Californians say another state should do. They are a Socialist Utopia and they are failing because of it.

I scanned the recent Forturne 400 billionaire list, for addresses, and there's 44 billionaires in California, and if you think, for one minute, they're leaving and taking their business with, think again!

Year after year, I curiously look at the Fortune 500 companies, where they're located, where they continue to be located, and wonder? Why aren't you moving? Ever check to see of all the Fortune 500 companies still located not just in high-tax California, but other high-tax states as well, and they ain't movin on!

The smaller companies, yes, I can see that, but the bigger ones are there to stay! And why should the CEO's bow to their employees, all clamoring to move the company? They can well pay the taxes and they'd miss their country club friends!

When I lived in MN, that huge conglomerate 3M threatened to move to CA, even bought a huge chunk of land there back in the 80's for a new corporate headquarters. And? With MN's continual high taxes, they're still there!

The billionnaire CEO's don't sweat high taxes as they've got an army of tax consultants to get them out of paying taxes, and no sympathy for its employees!

The biggest mystery of this continent: Our super low taxes and who's relocating here!!! Who relocated here eversince we've had such low taxes in the 50's, 60's, 70's, 80's, 90's, 00's?

Can someone compile a list?

Hollywood no longer makes movies in California. They go to Canada where there is greater economic liberty--no unions, fewer regulations and taxes.

Here's a snippet of an article I found on the exodus of businesses from California. There are plenty more articles similar to this one online:

Spectrum Locations Consultants recorded 254 California companies moved some or all of their work and jobs out of state in 2011, 26% more than in 2010 and five times as many as in 2009. According SLC President, Joe Vranich: the “top ten reasons companies are leaving California: 1) Poor rankings in surveys 2) More adversarial toward business 3) Uncontrollable public spending 4) Unfriendly business climate 5) Provable savings elsewhere 6) Most expensive business locations 7) Unfriendly legal environment for business 8) Worst regulatory burden 9) Severe tax treatment 10) Unprecedented energy costs.


Vranich considers California the worst state in the nation to locate a business and Los Angeles is considered the worst city to start a business. Leaving Los Angeles for another surrounding county can save businesses 20% of costs. Leaving the state for Texas can save up to 40% of costs. This probably explains why California lost 120,000 jobs last year and Texas gained 130,000 jobs.

Wow, so much for the glass being half full. Angry much?
Also, Canada supports unions, unlike the United States. They're much more akin to socialism than we are.

Not angry. Just stating the facts.

Except for Socialized Canadian Healthcare (the reason why tens of thousands of Canadians come to America each year for healthcare--otherwise they would never receive it until it was too late), Canada is far more economically free than the United States.

The costs of making movies is far less in Canada than in Hollywood. This is why movie producers go North to make their movies.

It's the same reason CA businesses go to NV, WA, TX, and overseas to do business.

Ever notice how people who think taxes should be higher never volunteer to donate their money to the government?

Ever notice how people who want laws for everything under the sun only want other people to be controlled and restricted?
